consideration of the apologizing to the american people? >> i mean, apologizing would basically say the decision was a wrong decision. and i don't believe it was the wrong decision. >> the former president also seemed eager to talk about one of the most contentious issues of his presidency, torture, specifically, waterboarding. >> i said to our team, are the techniques legal? and a legal team says, yes, they are, and i said, use them. >> why is waterboarding legal, in your opinion? >> because the lawyer said it was legal. it didn't fall within the anti-torture act. i'm not a lawyer, but you have to trust the judgment of people around you, and i do. >> and mr. bush cleared up apparent confusion about t.a.r.p., the government's attempt to bail out troubled banks. >> a recent poll said they asked people who created t.a.r.p. 50% of the people said barack obama. >> oh, yeah? well, 50% of the people are wrong. it happened under my watch. >> well, former president george
